Happy Birthday

Hi! I'm loving having a bit more free time, now I can actually have time to join in with some great challenges! So for this card I used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches :

And my creation...

I know it's not a new idea using stitching down the middle of an element, but while spending a bit (ok a lot :) of time on Pinterest, I've seen a few cards using it and wanted to try it. I pulled out my subtle polka dot scraps from the paper stack and punched out two hearts in each colour, I sponged the edges, and attached to crumb cake tag with stitching. I layered wild wasabi lacy circle behind the tag and added my happy birthday from 'Teeny tiny sentiments'. The white background is embossed with the chevron EB folder.

Go here to check out the design teams great creation :)

I also wanted to enter this card for Inkspirational Challenge - anything goes. Once again an amazing design team, so go here and check out their creations.

Thanks for looking :)
